Arnold's anniversary

A year since Gov. Schwarzenegger took over in Sacramento, KPCC's road-traveling talk host, Kitty Felde, takes Talk of the City to the capital on Friday from 2 to 3 p.m. She'll talk with Sacramento Bee columnist Dan Walters, State Senator Roy Ashburn and Assemblyman Joseph Canciamilla, among others. I guess now is a fair time to ask (not that I know the answer): whatever happened to the Times' investigation into Schwarzenegger's past with women? The lead reporter, Gary Cohn, still seems busy on somethng. His lone byline of the year came Oct. 30, when Cohn, Robert W. Welkos and Janet Stobar combined on a daily story about British TV host Anna Richardson pressing a libel action against Schwarzenegger. Bee blogger Dan Weintraub, incidentally, notes that in his first year Schwarzenegger has shattered all previous records for political fundraising in the state, taking in $26 million from mostly special interests.
